July 5: Next meeting of the municipal council of Mukilteo

MUKILTEO, Washington, July 2, 2022 – For its REGULAR MEETING on July 5 at 6 p.m., the Mukilteo Municipal Council will discuss/vote on the following agenda elements:

2022 Island County Lane Striping ILA (AB22-084)

Unable to do its annual road markings last year due to a lack of paint, the streets of Mukilteo need a fresh coat of pavement markings along the traffic lanes. Because the City does not have the personnel or equipment to perform this task, Island County Public Works completed this work in 2019 and 2020 through an interagency agreement. A new interagency agreement with Island County is required to get the job done this year. It is recommended that Council MOTION to authorize the Mayor to sign the Interagency agreement with Island County for city-wide pavement markings. The total cost of the project must not exceed $32,121.

61st Culvert Construction Contract Award and Consultant Agreement (AB22-097)

The existing culvert at 61st Place West, south of 88th Street West, was blocked due to periods of heavy rain that caused stormwater to overflow the road. As part of an amicable settlement reached in mid-2014, the City has undertaken to program the improvement of the culvert in the City’s 2015 budget. During the design of the project, the City came up against several obstacles, including the poor quality of the soil. Unforeseen obstacles combined with additional design changes requested by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Tulalip Tribes resulted in a significant increase in the project’s estimated costs.

The final project design was approved by the US Army Corps of Engineers and the Tulalip Tribes. However, the final design resulted in both upstream and downstream expansion, most of which is on private property. Thus, the City negotiated the temporary and permanent easements necessary for the realization of the project.

It is recommended that the MOTION Board:

  • Assign a West 60th Avenue Drainage System Repair Contract to the lowest responsible bidder, OMA Construction for an amount of $868,648.00, which includes WA State sales and use tax; and,
  • Approve a construction contingency fund in the amount of $130,297, approximately fifteen (15%) of the lowest responsible bid; and,
  • Approve Supplemental Agreement #12 between the Town of Mukilteo and Tuttle Engineering and Management in the amount of $233,843.00

Approval of the consultant agreement for the improvement of the drainage of the Chennault Beach promenade (AB22-107)

During periods of high flows, roadway flooding occurs along the Chennault Beach Boardwalk. On March 31, 2022, PACE Engineers, Inc. was selected as the Engineering Consultant to provide professional services for the design and engineering of the Chennault Beach Drive Drainage Improvement Project. This project will consist of constructing a new drainage system along the south side of Chennault Beach Drive, between 60th Avenue W and Marine View Drive, to improve the efficiency of capturing and conveying surface water to mitigate roadway flooding and improve conditions for the traveling public.

It is recommended that the MOTION Board authorize a design budget of $352,054 and approve the Consultant contract between the Town of Mukilteo and PACE Engineers, Inc. for design engineering services for the Chennault Beach Drive drainage improvements projectin the amount of $327,554.

International Home Improvement Code (IRC) Amendment – Fence Permit Exemption (AB22-086 & ORD 1466)

Prior to 2016, only fences over seven feet in height required a building permit. Staff believe the 2016 amendment was intended only to require a building permit for fences taller than six feet, to promote consistency with the city’s zoning code residential fence height requirements. The 2016 building code amendment was never implemented after it was passed, which further indicates that the 2016 amendment was not intended to require building permits for all fences in residential situations. If Ordinance 1466 were to pass, it would correct this unintended and unintended change to the 2016 building code.

Resolution of council regarding information on the waterfront redevelopment project (AB22-110 & RES 22-11)

Mukilteo City Council Resolution 22-11 instructs the mayor and municipal staff to:

  • Disclose to the Board any information/discussion between the City and the Port of Everett regarding the waterfront.
  • Inform City Council of work being done by Mukilteo City staff that may lead to a decision regarding waterfront development before City Council takes action
  • The Mayor and/or Waterfront Redevelopment Council Liaison shall provide periodic updates to Council regarding any progress on the Waterfront Redevelopment Project.
  • Nothing in the City’s partnership with the Port of Everett will preclude the City from taking steps to complete interim projects as outlined in the Downtown Waterfront Master Plan.

It is recommended that the MOTION Board approve Resolution 22-11.
